FATHER O'MALLEY'S SUGGESTIONS TURNED AROUND TO APPLY TO THOSE WORKING TO REJECT THE ANTI-SPIRIT OF VATICAN II AND ITS SHIFTS IN THE CHURCH BASED UPON BOGUS AUTHOIRTY BUT APPLIED NOW TO THE REFORM IN CONTINUITY MOVEMENT AND ITS LEGITIMATE AUTHORITATIVENESS!
But I would like to take his words and apply it to "anti-spirit" of Vatican II pundits who have hijacked Vatican II's true spirit and true implementation and have won the day for the past 45 or 50 years but no more and they know it! They are running as they shake in their boots about this turn of events that they can not control.
And so, let's apply Fr. O'Malley's words to those who are now embracing the true spirit of Vatican II as they reject the post-Vatican II anti-spirit, which is helping the Church now actually to implement Vatican II.
So this is applied to the anti-spirit of Vatican II adherents who now have seen the light and are embracing the "reform in continuity" true spirit of Vatican II. So they must move from the anti-spirit perspective to the true spirit perspective by doing the following things Fr. O'Malley suggests:
from commands to invitations
from monologue to dialogue
from laws to ideals
from threats to persuasion
from ruling to serving
from hostility to friendship
from rivalry to partnership
from suspicion to trust
from withdrawal to engagement
from passive acceptance to active participation
from behaviour modification to conversion of heart
[He goes on –-]
What the Council was asking really was a kind of conversion and a shift in core values; a new heart.
My final comment: Apply the above to the dogmatism of those who have no real authority in the Church and thus are authoritarian to those who do have authority in the Church like our Holy Father which is actually authoritativeness.
Anti-spirit of Vatican II is bogus authority and many are screaming as they lose this ill begotten authority and the spirit of Vatican II authentic authority exercised by the Holy Father and the bishops in union with him is the authentic authority!
